MEET THE TEAM
Building Services maintains and operates BPS buildings and grounds, and includes Custodial Services, Grounds Services, Equipment Repair Services, and Materials Distribution.
The Energy Division utilizes Building Management Systems to monitor and manage all BPS building utilities, and to find efficiency and conservation opportunities while balancing occupancy comfort levels. The Energy Division projects, monitors, and analyzes utility usages and costs, and reports this information on a monthly and annual schedule to BPS leadership.
The Environmental Division is responsible for monitoring the environmental quality of BPS buildings and properties, with an emphasis on improving air quality within classrooms, utilizing simple integrated pest management (IPM) techniques, managing asbestos, and testing all water sources used for drinking, food preparation, or medical services.
Sustainability & Environmental Resources supports Building Services and the Energy and Environmental Divisions, while providing strategic planning and implementation for BPS in the areas of green buildings, waste, water, energy, and environmental resources, healthy schools, student engagement, and sustainability education.
